He was my teacher
February 12, 2017 8:57 pm

At school, I had him as my sub every year, and I was about to have him as homeroom, but the night before the first day of school, his daughter wrote on her instagram that he passed away just earlier that day. I will always remember him. Along with a soundbender he also wrote a book called, the moon, the sun, and a hotdog bun. May HaShem bless his family.

I am so sorry for your loss. I saw Moshe on Shark Tank and he won my heart, loved his energy! I bought his product right away and l still use it to this day. I always remembered his name and I was glad he was doing good in his business. He’s gone too soon and I wish peace in the heart of all his family members.

So very sorry to hear of your dear brother’s passing. May you, your mom, and the rest of your family find comfort in Hashem.
Though I didn’t know him, after seeing all the wonderful tributes, I wish I had had the good fortune of knowing him.

Moshe, used his talents and charm to inspire and teach, was a very caing person, and loved to make other happy. I hear that he has raised some terrific children – may they have the strength to continue to grow and make Klal yisroel very proud!

I was a student in one of the Rabbi Weiss’ Hebrew school classes last year, and he was one of the really amazing teachers that I had at the Talmud Torah of Minneapolis, and I had a lot of great teachers there. He taught me many different things that I found very interesting. I am deeply upset by his passing.

To the extended Weiss Family: המקום ינחם אתכם בתוך שאר אבלי ציון וירושלים.

Only fond memories, ב”ה.

When Moshe walked into a room you felt it.
What a character. From joking to learning. Everything he did always had a lining of fun to/with it.

You’ll be missed, Moshe.

You so generously donated goods to the homeless of Los Angeles. You wanted to do more and more for them knowing they’ll be cold two winters ago. Your smile was infectious and your heart so majestic. The homeless are warmer because of you!!!

Leah is among many friends I met long ago..this news is so sad and reading these tributes makes it that much more apparent that our physical world has lost an amazing human being. To Josh and Leah and siblings, beloved Dr. Weiss, Rabbi Weiss’ children, may you find comfort and peace.

BDE. Unbelievable. A great, kind, deep, compassionate mensch. You were the only adult my son trusted. You were there for him in a way no one else could. We’ll miss you deeply, Mosh Kaposh.

I am so sad hearing this news. As a Roman Catholic, this magnificent Jewish Rabbi taught me more about Judaism than anyone I have ever met. RIP, Good and Faithful Servant.

Moshe was my head counselor at CGI daycamp in Morristown. He was such an awesome guy. So smart, funny and creative. Very kind and sensitive to others as well. Really always saw the better in everything. May his family find comfort and may they be given the strength to cope with this most difficult tragedy.

As great of an inventor as he was, he was an even better educator. Rabbi Weiss taught me how to read Hebrew, and gave me the confidence to succeed in Limudei Kodesh.

August 29, 2016 8:22 pm

I didn’t know you, but you sound like a force to be reckoned with. You’ve accomplished so much in this life and in such wide array of fields. May his family know comfort in the fact that he was such a special person.
